I think it is good that a lot of people are learning new things. Whether it will help us or not is of little value.
A lot of them are desperate because they lost their livelihood. There is only one option left for them, acquire work from home skills and get paid for it. It is true that those who do simply data entry jobs and related freelance options which requires a lower skill level are going to face a lot of competition all of a sudden.
As a webmaster what we can do is to provide learning material and resources to all those who want to learn new ideas, skills and techniques.
